The Top 10 Products You Need for Grooming Your Wrinkly Dog

Do you have a wrinkly pup? Are you looking for the best way to keep them groomed and looking their best? Grooming your dog is an important part of responsible pet ownership, but can be daunting at times. Don’t worry though—we’ve gathered together a list of the top 10 grooming products every wrinkly-pet-parent needs in order to keep their pup happy and healthy.

1. Shampoo and Conditioner

Special products are needed for sensitive skin, so it’s important to choose one specifically designed for your pup’s breed and needs. Look for a mild shampoo that will cleanse their fur without drying out their delicate skin.

Especially if you have a long-haired wrinkly breed like the English Bulldog or French Bulldog, conditioner is a must! Use it after shampooing to keep their coat silky and smooth, which will help reduce shedding and make combing easier.

2. Brushes & Combs

One of the most important tools in any pet grooming kit! Choose brushes with soft bristles that won’t irritate your pup’s skin, and combs with wide-spaced teeth for easy mat removal. Make sure to use them regularly to keep their fur tangle-free and looking its best.

3. Nail Clippers

Keeping your pet’s nails trimmed is essential for protecting furniture and carpets from scratches. Invest in high-quality nail clippers that are specifically designed for dogs, as they will be easier to use and cause less stress on you both!

4. Ear Wipes

All breeds of dog require routine ear cleaning, but this is especially true for wrinkly pups like Pugs and Bulldogs. Squishface Ear wipes contain the effective ingredients known as Ketoconazole, Chlorhexidine, and Phytosphingosine. Together they work to help fight against bacteria, yeast, and fungus. With their convenient, easy-to-use finger sheath, these ear wipes make keeping up with your dog's ear care super simple.

5. Wrinkle Wipes

Perfect for quick clean-ups between baths, facial wipes are incredibly handy for keeping your pup’s wrinkles clean and free from dirt, debris and odors. Our Squishface Wrinkle Wipes will help you wipe away dirt and grime in wrinkle folds, around tear stains, tail pockets, and between toes. 

6. Wrinkle Paste

This is a must-have for all wrinkly breeds! Wrinkle paste helps fill in crevices and keep fur away from eyes, nose, and mouth. Use Squishface Wrinkle Paste as a protective barrier on your dog’s nose rope, wrinkles and skin folds, toes or tail pockets, and to remove stubborn tear stains.

Our Wrinkle Paste was created without water or alcohol and with only essential ingredients. Because so many dogs are prone to allergies, we excluded many common allergens found in other products. Instead, we use a calming shea butter and protective avocado oil to soothe sensitive skin.

7. Toothbrush & Toothpaste

Dental care is just as important for dogs as it is for humans! Choose a toothbrush specifically designed for pets, then use it with toothpaste made especially for canines. Brush at least twice a week (or better yet, daily!) to keep your pup’s teeth and gums healthy.

8. Nose Balm

A common issue that brachycephalic breeds are prone to is hyperkeratosis - where dry, cracked noses are a common concern. Luckily, Squishface nose balm proves to be a helpful addition to your dog’s daily grooming routine. This hydrating solution works wonders by moisturizing and soothing the snout, alleviating discomfort caused by rough patches and irritations on the nose. Its formulation is enriched with calming shea butter that not only softens but helps nourish delicate skin.  

9. Deodorizing Spray

Perfect for those days when your pup has a bit of a “doggy odor”, deodorizing spray helps neutralize odors so your pup smells nice and fresh again. Look for one that is non-toxic and alcohol-free to ensure it won’t irritate their skin or eyes.

10. Grooming Glove

Finally, a grooming glove is the perfect tool for keeping your pup’s fur looking its best! Use it to capture loose hairs and massage your pup’s skin at the same time. It also helps reduce shedding and keep their coat soft and healthy.

The Bottom Line

Grooming your wrinkly pup doesn’t have to be a challenge. With the right products on hand, keeping them looking their best is easier than ever! From shampoo and conditioner to tools for brushing and trimming nails, there are now plenty of options available to suit every breed - so get ready to give your pup the pampering they deserve!
